Man Utd news LIVE: Comments from Ten Hag’s Cristiano Ronaldo cause excitement, reaction to Man City defeat, PSV sets Gakpo transfer price

Good morning Manchester United fans

Roy Keane has launched himself into the Man Utd stars after their dismal performance against Man City.

“United can’t take anything from this game. The players should be ashamed. You can’t go 4-0 at half-time in a derby game,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s very embarrassing, as brilliant as City United were they were desperate, especially in midfield. They got rolled in midfield and defensively they were all over the place.

“We look at the lead again… there was nothing from Man Utd.

“When you give players like De Bruyne time and space, you look for trouble. United have been punished and rightly so. Elite sport is fantastic, but brutal.

“Today was brutal for Manchester United because when you’re not on your toes you get hammered by your local rivals.

“United have an experienced team out there. City lacked players, but whoever comes into the team is pure quality. They have while Man Utd seemed to be everywhere.

“At a big club like Manchester United you wonder what it must be like when the players were 4-0 in the dressing room at half-time. It must be bizarre but these players are getting used to it as they were 4-0 down at Brentford.

“The manager has to scratch his head with his staff as there has been progress in the last four games but this is a big step backwards.”

Piers Morgan branded Erik ten Hag an “arrogant, deluded jerk” after the Manchester United manager benched Cristiano Ronaldo against City.

An angry looking Ronaldo, 37, watched as his side were defeated 6-3 by their bitter rivals at the Etihad.

Asked after the game why he decided not to bring the Portuguese up front, Ten Hag claimed it was “out of respect for his great career”.

However, Sun columnist Piers doesn’t believe the explanation – and tweeted after the game: ‘Imagine benching @Cristiano for Utd’s biggest game of the season, then using 5 other subs while fading into oblivion, and then claim you did it ‘out of respect’ for him?

“Ten Hag is an arrogant deluded jerk and the way he’s treating Ronaldo is a disgrace.”

Christian Eriksen has admitted Manchester United need to make ‘many changes’ after 6-3 derby humiliation.

The 30-year-old told Sky Sports: “It came very hard.

“Everyone thinks it was a very bad day at the office. We started on the wrong foot.

“They had chances right after kick-off. We can only blame ourselves.

“We let them share their strength. The main focus of this game is ourselves.

“There are many things we need to change and many things we need to do better.” Man Utd news LIVE: Comments from Ten Hag’s Cristiano Ronaldo cause excitement, reaction to Man City defeat, PSV sets Gakpo transfer price
